Rhingia campestris (Pinoccio ... Hover-fly)

By FeatherFriend
The first I have ever seen in our garden. It paid a visit yesterday and was gone in seconds so only got two shots, this is the better of the two, obviously not impressed with the fading Lavender plant Wink
Many thanks for the support on my previous upload,
Geoff.
